REBELS AT SEA: Privateering in the American Revolution
Privateers were privately owned vessels, mostly refitted merchant ships, that were granted permission by the new government to seize British merchantman and men of war. It was a time when the young Continental navy numbered no more than about 60 vessels all told, privateers rushed to fill the gaps. Photos, some in color.
